Nesting dinghies?

Dinghies, day sailers, world cruisers. Many small sailboats make ideal rowboats or low-speed power boats.

Nesting dinghies?

Postby Bowersda » Tue Jan 24, 2017 5:53 pm

Any thoughts on plans for a nesting dingy for cruising. I saw some comments in other publications I have been reading but don't remember seeing any thoughts about them in this forum. It seems like a good idea but I don't know what problems would be encountered by a DIY'r.

Welcome! I'll have to think about nesting dinghies. Think it would work with stitch and glue. I don't know what to do with the seats.

Is that a Healey 3000 or 100-4 or 6 in you picture?

I read "Tightwads on the Loose" and they built a nesting dingy for their 31' cruiser and used it in many places in the Pacific. They speak highly of its ease of use.

As for the Healey, it's a 1956 100-4 similiar to one I used to own. Only two forms of civilized transportation in the world are cranky old British Healeys and a leaky old sailboat. :lol:
